What's in your pack? Backpacking gear list 3: backpacking for beginners
"For first-time backpackers, the idea can be a bit daunting. After all, hiking long hours with a heavy pack, sleeping in primitive camp sites with no facilities whatsoever, and relying only on the equipment you can carry at one time are things that you don’t really do in your everyday life! A little bit of planning can make it a lot easier to take that first big step, so we’ve prepared this gear list with your first backpacking trip in mind..."

      Comments about Katadyn Hiker Microfilter:

      You cannot go wrong with this filter. The ease of use and quick attachments make this an ideal filter for any level of outdoors person. Don't be intimidated thinking you never go far enough to need this. You can cut the amount of water weight you usually carry by taking this along on even the day trips and your legs will thank you on the longer treks just make sure a natural water source is nearby. My 9 year old already understands the setup and doesn't have to use excessive force to get it going and she loves to use it.

        Very easy to use and one of the lightest filters you can buy. I personally like the way it pumps and I also like that it is a very simple design so it has less of a possibility of something breaking in the field.

        Comments about Katadyn Hiker Microfilter:

        This filter is a good choice for beginners, scouts, or if you just prefer a simple way to filter water. Only one moving part, so not alot to break. For longer trips you might look at something with a ceramic filter, which you can clean if you clog it in the field.
